This is the dress I mentioned when I was interviewed on Retro Chick, six weeks ago now! I was saving it up for Friday night and two of my friends’ birthday celebrations. I love the patchwork design and the ‘I like you America’ print, I wonder where it came from. I’m pretty sure the dress is from the eighties (it wasn’t expesive, but there are no labels so I actually have no idea. I wore my crinoline under it. The overall effect is a bit like those Japanese Lolita girls, don’t you think? Though not as costumey.
Also, apologies for the rubbish photo. I didn’t get ready until after it got dark, which is aboput 6p.m. now. I thought I could photoshop this up properly, but I should have just bitten the bullet and switched on the flash. You live and learn I suppose.
